Implant Solutions for Edentulous Patients

ADA Credits: 1
AGD Credits: 1
Cost: $19.00

Webinar: The edentulous population continues to grow domestically as well as globally. This market has been underserved for many years, and patients have had to adapt to ill-fitting dentures. Thanks to advances in technologies and techniques, dental professionals are now able to provide predictable solutions to increase function, form, and esthetics. These solutions will enhance the quality of life of a fully edentulous patient.

Mini Dental Implants Part 1

AGD Credits: 1
Cost: $19.00

Webinar: Increased demands for the functional and esthetic replacement of missing teeth have pushed mini dental implants to the forefront of general practice dentistry. This webinar is for general practice dentists who are considering mini dental implant patient procedures in their practices. Dr. Shatkin will present the efficacy of mini dental implants, treatment planning, basic treatment protocols, and the success rates of mini dental implant procedures.

Dental Radiation Safety: Guidelines for Prescribing Radiographs and Limiting Radiation Exposure

Dental radiation safety is a critical component of patient care. Responsibilities of the healthcare provider include reducing patient exposure to radiation by utilizing appropriate procedures during patient assessment.

A Review of Luting Agents, Properties and Bioactivity

Restorative materials and luting agent  have developed exponentially since the introduction of the first modern dental cement, zinc phosphate, in 1879. Almost a century later, additional luting agents became available.

Optimize Your Radiographic Caries Detection

Webinar: Radiographic caries detection is one of the most commonly performed tasks in the dental office. While new image receptors have many advantages over traditional film-based imaging, many clinicians report limitations in the ability to detect caries on radiographic images. The purpose of this presentation is to assess the components of the imaging chain with regard to their impact on caries detection, so that the clinician can optimize radiographic caries detection.

An Update on Bitewing Radiography Technology

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

The discovery of X-rays by Röntgen, and early work by dentists, including Dr. C. Edmund Kells, led to significant developments and improvements over time in the ability of clinicians to diagnose medical and later dental conditions. Since these early developments, advances in oral radiography have resulted in a wide range of diagnostic options and improved capabilities for the detection of pathological lesions and other anomalies.

Pathways to Infection Prevention

Expanded Dental Implant Treatment Options Through Technology

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

Treatments with dental implants and the technologies behind them have developed considerably since the introduction of endosseous root-form standard diameter implants. These advancements include less invasive surgery and simpler treatment options for overdentures, single crowns and fixed prostheses. This has revolutionized the treatment options clinicians can provide to patients and the functionality that patients can obtain.

Predictable Direct and Indirect Adhesion

ADA Credits: 1
AGD Credits: 1
Cost: $19.00

Caries Management

ADA Credits: 1
AGD Credits: 1
Cost: $19.00

Webinar: Dental caries continues to be a pandemic disease. In order to control this disease, an approach is needed that balances the oral environment to help prevent caries. Options include the use of fluoride, antibacterial therapies, pH neutralization and the use of other agents. Utilizing these and providing patients with wellness information are suitable approaches for the control of dental caries.

Contemporary Adhesive Systems and Resin Composites

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

Modern restoratives had their beginnings in the 1700s with the introduction of a metal-based direct restorative material, followed by various developments in amalgam restoratives that continued to accelerate during the 20th century. It was not until the latter half of the 20th century that modern tooth-colored direct restorative materials became available. Initially, these were difficult to handle, offered relatively poor esthetics (although not compared to amalgam) and poor physical properties, and were not bonded to tooth structure. 

Restorability and Treatment with the Single-Unit Crown

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

Restorative dentistry is both art and science used to restore the dentition that is worn, damaged or missing due to disease, injury, age or failure of previously placed restorations and for esthetics. The restorative procedures vary greatly depending on the complexity of the clinical case; the health, finances and desires of the patient; and the preferences of the clinician. The single-unit, full-coverage crown is one of the most common restorations in dentistry.

Dental Unit Waterlines and Amalgam: Myths and Reality

Narrow Diameter Implants: A Minimally Invasive Solution for Overdenture Treatment

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

The use of implants in the edentulous arch has changed the way in which patients can be treated. Standard diameter implants have been utilized successfully for more than twenty years for overdenture patients, and more recently narrow-diameter implants have been utilized.  Both standard and narrow-diameter implants have demonstrated high success and survival rates and are associated with improvements in function and patient comfort.

Delivering Optimal Results for Fixed Partial Dentures

ADA Credits: 2
AGD Credits: 2
Cost: $29.00

Fixed partial dentures require careful consideration of the materials and treatment protocol that will be followed. The successful recording of preparations, manufacture of multi-unit restorations, and their delivery intraorally is aided by astute attention to material properties at each of these critical stages. Detailed communication and collaboration with the laboratory are also required to ensure clinical success and the best possible outcomes.
